Realistic or not, such an approach is well calculated to send the reader back to the chessboard with a determination to improve In fact, it should probably take pride of place as it is likely to be of far more practical use to the vast majority of chess players who, like the author, would not claim to be chess geniuses.

Jun 19, Alberto rated it really liked it. I really wanted to give this book 5 stars. Korchnoi is a great player, his games are enterprising, he's played more serious games than any other grandmaster in history, and his writing is both entertaining and instructive.

But ultimately there were just far too many analytical mistakes in his notes. Still a great read though.

My Best Games

In this book the late Victor Korchnoi annotates of his best games, half played with the white pieces, half with the black. It has to be said that Kasparov is conspicuous by his absence, though Korchnoi has defeated him too in his time, of course. He also has a relaxed attitude towards errors — and from both sides — an acceptance that inaccuracies will inevitably occur; they are all part of the game. His annotations have integrity, insight and veracity, while remaining for the most part conversational in tone.
